Shapeways and Eyebeam are pleased to announce the first ever Computational Fashion Master Class to be held at NYU Polytechnic in NYC. In this ten-day intensive workshop, selected participants will learn, experiment, and collaboratively create work that interrogates the emerging modes of digital textiles modeled directly on the body.
The masterclass will run from July 18-27th, 2014.
Participants will gain proficiency in a range of tools and methods crucial to both current commercial and artistic practices. The program will provide an overview of software and programming environments that include Processing, Maya, Rhino, and Z-Brush, as well as instruction in 3D printing and digital fabrication processes.
